    My brother in law has special needs and lives in a shared communual house and a few weeks ago his TV stopped receiving a signal from the antenna. I visited him today for the first time since it stopped worrking and took this photo. You can see his aerial that I've drawn a blue line around. I...

    Signal reception

    I have an 6+ and see no reason to ditch it as it works fine. I’ve now been told that Apple no longer support the 6+ with updates, but not sure what that would mean to me as I’m not a data streamer or a large scale App user. Phone and texted fulfill my needs. But recently I was in Cambridge on...

    Belmont COM4 and COM6 reception problems today 8 September

    Is there a problem with Belmont today? My COM4 and COM6 signals have become very much weaker, varying throughout the day. Is the hot weather causing unusual propagation conditions?

    Aerial Splitter Causing Bad Reception

    Hello I have recently put up a good aerial on my house. The cable comes into the loft, through a splitter, which leads to a bedroom and living room. Living room reception is pretty good, it's a Sony A8. Bedroom reception, not so good, it's a 2012 Samsung F8000. I only have a cheap...

    DAB radio sudden poor reception on one station only.

    Absolute radio keeps erratically cutting out on my hi-fi system after years of uninterrupted reception. All the other DAB stations including the Absolute 70s, 80s, 90s, 20s & Classic rock stations are fine, just Absolute's main station. If it's a fault my hi-fi has developed, how come other...

    Hi All, I have a strange issue that I cant get my head around and wondered if anyone could shed some light. I live in a detached house which has an aerial situated in the loft. I don't know for sure but I would estimate the age of the aerial to be around 2005-2010 so fairly new by aerial...

    Pioneer x-hm50 DAB processing issue

    I have an old Pioneer x-hm50 in my shed that's giving me grief on DAB; the signal quality fluctuates from levels where it's fine (80-90) to where it drops (<50) every few seconds. I've been blaming it on radar from the airport that's a mile away, though there has to be more to it (it's also...

    Weird issue where i get better reception with the aerial not conencted to the wall plate!

    I have a slightly strange issue where my TV gets a stronger signal when my aerial is not plugged into the f-type cable hanging out the back of the TV! The aerial cable is aroun 8m so must be acting as a reasonable passive aerial! I'm a bit stumped as i'm using a brand new screened f-type...

    Freesat Reception

    Whilst waiting for delivery of a new TV aerial I was using my Panasonic freesat recorder to watch programs. BBC 1 and 2 were perfect but ITV was pixilating at times. Not very well informed about sat dish reception as opposed to freeview on normal aerial. I imagined that if 1 & 2 were fine so...

    Poor Freeview Reception on HD channels

    Freeview reception dropping out on HD channels, pixelating and unable to record programmes. I thought I’d share a problem and its resolution… For 3 months or more I tried to find out why all the HD channels were flaky and kept pixelating and going to a blank screen for 5 seconds or so and then...

    Question Eutelsat 9B UK Reception?

    Unfortunately, Super Tennis appears to have moved from Hotbird (13.0E) to Eutelsat 9B (9.0E). Is Eutelsat 9B receivable here in the UK? I already have a dish pointing at Hotbird with a second LNB mounted on it to receive Astra 1 (19.2). I'm half hoping that I can just mount a third LNB on...
